Plaintiffs Community Power Network Corporation (d/b/a Solar United Neighbors) and the League of Women Voters of Florida, Inc., sue Defendant JEA, a Florida municipal electric utility, to enforce state law and to prevent the destruction of rooftop solar expansion in the Jacksonville area. Plaintiffs seek a declaration from the Court that JEA’s Energy Policy violates Florida law and an injunction directing JEA to provide a net metering program.
